Edward's Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy cost-efficient maize seeds and fertilizer for the coming harvesting season.

Edward's Group's story

Edward is 63 years old and has nine children. He has been a farmer for more than 20 years, and is always said to be a very experienced farmer. Even though Edward is the only one featured in the above picture, he is actually representing his group formed by six farmers, from Matete District, Kenya.

Edward started working alongside One Acre Fund a few years ago, in 2012, and decided to do so as he wanted to earn enough to send his children to school. Since then, he has seen his life improve; especially in the sense that he has been able to consistently feed his family ever since. This year he decided to represent his group as he wanted to spread the story of OAF farmers.

Edward’s Group will receive farming inputs to plant a total of 4.75 acres of land. Additionally, some of the farmers in the group will be purchasing a solar light so, with this loan, the group will also receive a total of two solar lights.
